questions that remain unanswered. i continue to be troubled by the fact that the u.n. ambassador decided to play what was essentially a political role. lou: israel, gaza, egypt, and ron, american foreign policy. will we ever get the facts on what happened in benghazi? we are joined next. ♪ lou: the white house today said president obama is not particularly concerned whether susan rice misled americans on the attack. press secretary fired back when asked whether the president recognizes the way information about benghazi has been handled and whether that raises serious questions. >> not particularly concerned about whether the ambassador or i went out and talk about the fact we believe extremists might have been irresponsible and whether we named them as terrorists or not does not -- no, it does not have any bearing on what happened and who is reeponsible as that investigation was continuing in benghazi. lou: you have to give this white house credit, i must say. i won't go into but we have to give them credit for, but ambassador susan rice failing to ease criticism again following meeti

right now in a new round of senate meetings for u.n. susan rice. she is going back after yesterday, it didn't go so well, she is going back. she will answer questions about the white house response to the consulate attack in benge, libya on 9/11 of this year. many political observers think she is trying to win supporters for a possible nomination of secretary of state. she would have to be confirmed in the senate. senator bob corker earlier said miss rice's statements may prove she is too political. the meeting between susan collins, she expressed concerns too. she is not known as a republican fire brand but she expressed concerns. these meetings come a day after three top republicans said they were more concerned about libya now after meeting with rice than ever before. here is senator collins a short time ago. >> i asked ambassador rice why she did not qualify her comments more, in light of this contradictory reporting from the president of the country. her answer was that she relied on our intelligence analysis. i don't understand why she would not have at least qualified her re

"ac 360" starts now. >>> we begin the way anderson does every night, keeping them honest. not offering opinions or playing favorites. you can get that on the other cable news networks. we're just searching for the facts. tonight, the facts on a controversial practice called repairative therapy. keeping them honest, a mountain of medical research says otherwise. even though some people claim it helps them even though practitioners may use it with the best of intentions, plenty of people say there's nothing reparative or therapeutic in what they endure. >> i was manipulated into believing i could change my sexual orientation. instead i was subjected to terrible abuse that mirrored the assault i experienced as a young person. what i can tell you is conversion therapy does not work. my family and i have wasted thousands
of an attempt at damage control. u.n. ambassador susan rice's trip to capitol hill, she and the acting cia director, michael morell, meeting with republican senators john mccain, kelly ayotte and lindsay graham, who were not pleased with what they heard. >> it is clear that the information she gave the american people was incorrect when she said it was a spontaneous demonstration triggered by a hateful video. it was not, and there was compelling evidence at the time that that was certainly not the case, including statements by libyans as well as other americans who are fully aware that people don't bring mortars and rocket-propelled grenades to spontaneous demonstrations. >> in a statement after the meeting, ambassador rice said that neither she nor anyone in the administration intended to mislead the american people. but the breaking news concerns the part in her sunday talk show statements that substituted the word "extremists" for al qaeda. remember, the administration said she was working from edited talking points. the question is, who did the editing? today, the senators say that act
a month or so ago saying that they thought the sexiest man alive was kim jong un. >> row under it. >> bill: the new 2-year-old head of north korea. we knew it was a joke. except the people of korea. they put out their leading newspaper -- >> in china. the chinese communist newspaper -- >> bill: this is great. one of ours has been declared the sexiest person on the planet. neil cavuto yesterday reported that story and then followed up by introducing john mccain to talk about susan rice but they got back and forth on the sexiest man alive. >> by the way i thought you were the sexiest man alive. >> you know, i was encouraged, senator. he's a bit chunky. this could be paving the way. but enough about me. >> maybe you were separated at birth. but anyway -- >> this is going to be a tough interview now senator. would have been nice but you've gone the other way. >> bill: i like neil cavuto. i've been on his vo many times. if i had to list the top 1,000 candidates for being the sexiest man alive, he would not make
as part of her position in the u.n. and, in fact, reviewed the briefings that contained the references to al qaeda that individuals with ties to al qaeda were involved. and then yet, went on the sunday show and left a very different impression. let's not forget that on those sunday shows on "meet the press" as well as "face the nation" she also made the statement that al qaeda was decimated. and so it left a misleading impression to the american people. i was also troubled that they knew by the 21st the acting director of the cia said that the information about the reaction to the video and the protest was wrong and that no one corrected it, including ambassador rice, even though she had left that impression on every single network, op every sunday show. that left me very concerned about that as well. >> did she say to you that she had reviewed intelligence specifically about benghazi, that had the additional information? she couldn't say so publicly. had she reviewed that intelligence? did she affirm that to you or are you assuming that she had? >> she did review it. >> so, in other w

international allies, partners, the guys we do business with at the u.n. -- where is everyone else prepared to be before we go forward? host: on russia, this is the "wall street journal." the defeat was a relief in russia because mitt romney had called moscow the number one political foe of the u.s. it was added that mr. vladimir putin sent a telegram to mr. obama that the kremlin said was secret until the u.s. revealed the contents. dmitry medvedev posted a "congratulations" on twitter. so that was from russia. another foreign policy issue is china. here is the "new york times." warm words from china with a subtext of warning. robust relationships with china while maintaining traditional military ties with the u.s. we do not want to be forced to choose between beijing and washington but what is going on here? guest: it has to be looked at in the context of the campaign that just ended. china emerged as a symbol -- for romney, obama's regas overseas, his inability to stand up to this rising asian power. the united states and china are so intertwined economically that is a very hard to start
recently reread president obama's speech to the u.n. where there is no question he is saying the video did it. all of that was false. they all had reason to know it was false. clapper is just a clown. i mean, he does this all the time. and the idea that james clapper can take responsibility for making the changes, why isn't president obama furious at him? why doesn't president obama fire him today if the president really believed that clapper made a huge mistake? >> gretchen: that's a loaded question because as director of national intelligence to say one thing and then say another, especially when it has to do with al-qaeda, are they throwing him under the bus? >> look, i think he put himself under the bus by probably giving congress in those private briefings, a false answer. he said, we didn't make the changes. he said that to members of congress, presumably he was under oath, and then publicly says, oh, wait, we did make thet perjury. that's all that is. that is not ultimately taking responsibility. look, i think this does rest with two people. susan rice, who made those statements rep
news. >> when you have four people dead, including the first u.n. ambas -- u.s. ambassador in more than 30 years, how do you call that hype? >> how many security contractors died in iraq? do you know? >> i don't. >> no. nobody does because nobody cared. we know that several hundred died but there was never an official count done of security contractors in iraq. so when i see this focus on what was essentially a small fire fight, i think number one -- i've covered a lot of fire fights, it is impossible to figure out what happens in them sometimes and second, i think that the emphasis on benghazi has been political partly because fox was operating as a wing of the republican party. >> all right, thank you. >> you're welcome. >> bill: let's play it again. he says you're welcome. >> never ask a question you don't know the answer to. >> bill: you're welcome. get outta here! cut his mic. apparently he reported that the producer told him after the interview -- after they pulled the plug, the producer said you
for conflict. and i would look to the state department to carry this into the u.n. so that we get to the international forum particularly if it continues to escalate. member to come to frame that a declaratory policy for the nations that are not -- that have the servers that may not be partisan bidding so that it's clear, and then to start to think of other diplomatic actions that could potentially be taken to cut off the escalation of this activity or its attacks on us or on a larger group etc. >> but i don't want to take off the table actions on the diplomatic actions because i think that we have exhausted many of the potential diplomatic actions. and so we need to think about what are ways to send a strong signal to the leadership in x land and other places by some other actions in putting perhaps covert action. >> quick question, so far the u.s. government has said nothing publicly about who is behind the attacks. there's speculation in the media based on the leaks of incredible sources that the u.s. government has said nothing publicly. what is your decision as to whether or
that you have millions of people un document. if you move people out of that status, that will have a positive benefit not just to people, but to wages being depressed. equity is a critical issue. we face a significant challenge -- in the short-term, medium- term, and long term, there is so much inequity in education. it is not something that the political process likes to discuss, but it is one in which we need to think more creatively about how -- ideas not good for our -- it is not good for us in the medium or long-term. >> nice to go last on this because i can think.

grover norquist. this man is an un-elected person who is making you sign a pledge that has nothing to do with -- with the country. guest: thank you. respectfully disagree on all accounts. especially at the very beginning. you made the case that we are talking about 47%. the fact is, republicans are not. democrats are raising this issue over and over. they see political advantage in it, but one of our frustrations as republicans with that 47% is that many of them don't have the good-paying type of jobs they want that would allow them to be taxpayers. our frustration is that we have an economy that is flying so low and so slow it's very weak. we have so many people unemployed. so many people on food stamps. so many people who don't have a choice they have to rely on the government. we want that 47% to be reduced by stronger economic growth. we want those who begin in the lower classes of income to become middle tax taxpayers. and to rise to higher levels as well. that's our frustration. host: congressman braidy, we have been talking about this fiscal cliff that congress is grappling with a
